Welcome back to day three of the Clearly Besotted teasers! Today’s card features a new set called Shelve It. It is a larger set and contains four images centred around doing what you love, whether baking, crafting etc. I took three of the images for today’s birthday card and did a little watercolouring.
The four images in the set are all set in a line and you can sit them on shelf and for this design, I thought it would be fun to highlight a little bit of each image in a circular window. So, to plan the card I took three HA Circle Infinity Dies and set them onto a panel of Neenah 80lb. I ran them through the Gemini and then used those circles to trace feint lines onto some TH Distress Watercoor Cardstock.
I took the crafting, baking and science stamps and stamped a small portion of each into each circle using Versafine Onyx Black ink as it is waterproof. Next I stamped the shelf under each one. I erased the lines and then watercoloured them with Gansai Tambi paints.
The watercoloured panel was mounted onto a base card and then the window panel popped up over the top with foam tape. I wanted to have cascading sentiments at each window and for this needed to rummage around in different sets! I used a sentiment from Shelve It, one from Feisty Ferret and one from Scrumptious Birthday Sentiments. These were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black onto SSS Fog Cardstock and trimmed with SSS Sentiment Label Dies. I adhered them flat to the window panel, leaving a little bit overhanging each window.
In hindsight, I wasn’t sure if I should have changed the colour palette in each window, but at the time I felt I didn’t want the card to look a hot mess with a ton of different colours everywhere, so erred on the side of caution! I think the colours are so pretty and I forget how much I love that watercolor set!
It would be lovely if you could find some time to hop over to see what Stephanie, Keren and Michelle have created today. I’m looking forward to seeing their cards. I will be back with my final teaser for you tomorrow, thanks for stopping by!
